John Joseph Lynch’s work is predominantly based in printmaking but uses a wide range of methods; currently he is creating highly technical works which finalise in multi block woodcut. Lynch combines photographic, hand drawn and digitally created designs which merge into one final outcome as woodcut prints.
Industrial methods of mass print production are combined with traditional methods of printmaking, utilising traditional Japanese methods of block creation. Lynch's work deals with notions of consumer systems and media representation within visual culture in a politically volatile era, depicting iconic visualisations of power, beauty, and urban states of ruin and decay inspired by daily sights, consumer culture, current affairs, film and literature.
Lynch has been awarded top prizes for the Neo Print Prize 2012 and Royal Birmingham Society Art Print Biennial 2014. He has exhibited widely across the country, including shows in London - Multiplied (2013) and the Royal Academy Summer Show (2014) - and also internationally, with two shows in Hong Kong and one in Cuba.
